More photos have been released by NASA on the detailS of Yuggoth (Pluto to some). The photo below shows some “rounded and bizarrely textured mountains” that have been named the Tartarus Dorsa.

The strange photo shown below is the closest the New Horizons spacecraft got to Yuggoth. The photo was taken on 14 July 2015 and is a high-resolution image of two ice mountains. The image is approximately 75 miles over the dwarf planet’s surface.

In addition to these images, apparently NASA will be making a major announcement about Mars on the 28th of September 2015. My guess is they found evidence for water either on the surface or sub-surface of the planet. Shown below is a composited “selfie” the Mars rover Curiosity took. We will have to wait and see what this special announcement is.

A few other items:
- Recently, I have not answered some of the latest questions on the WordPress page; I have been very busy lately but will address the questions in the near future.
- I was thrilled to post a guest article earlier in the week and plan to post others as they become available.
- I want to give heads up that October will be “Reanimator” month – I plan on discussing the science behind the story and movie.
- Finally, I am excited that the printed version of “Journal of Lovecraftian Science, Volume 1” will soon be complete! I want to thank all who contributed toward the Kickstarter. Once the print versions are mailed to contributors the digital version of the document will be made available on Amazon. Steve Maschuck and I have plans for “Volume 2” and I will let everyone know about that Kickstarter when it is available. Again thank you one and all!
